Oh, brother. Sadly, I can believe that.


One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

But even at 91, he would still fall within average intelligence range. Same as 68% of the world's population. He's not retarded if that is where you are going with your argument.

Yeah, he started out with money. Yes his dad was wealthy. Yes, most people realize that, it was heavily politicized throughout the campaign by his detractors. As it turns out, about half of the country didn't think that "his dad had money" was a reason to vote for Hilary. Because it's not. It's like saying "it rained yesterday". Not really a reason to vote Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or any other party, or to not vote at all.

Do you hear the people sing / Lost in the valley of the night?
It is the music of a people / Who are climbing to the light.
For the wretched of the earth / There is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end / And the sun will rise...

100 is set as the median so at 91 he would be below the median. The average college student has an IQ of 115, well above Dubya. I'm not trying to insinuate that he was retarded, just not the sharpest knife in the drawer...not the guy you want running the country.

If it's been his belief for 16 years, he never once spoke to how in the campaign trail. Called ACA a disaster, but zero plan has been shared. Either there is no plan or there is and Trump didn't want his ACA hating base to hear the words "Universal Healthcare" come out of his mouth.

I don't think we will be that lucky. Likely guess is there is no plan past scrapping it.

And then we are right back to where we started.

Yes, exactly. The same might be true of Trump. He may have business savvy but not the skills necessary for running the country

And I would stress "may". We don't really know for sure beyond what is public record, and what we know there is not encouraging or supportive of any significant business savvy.

you are off your rocker, if you think DT doesn't have business savvy. there is no way he could build the buildings he has built without it. You need to step away from your preconceptions for minute.

Let me rephrase that. He is nothing special in the business and real estate world. Within his own peer group, he has not shown any particular savvy.

I don't think he's that low. How do you make it through Yale and Harvard with a 91 I.Q.? Doesn't compute.
